    Hello Future Students, Would you like to save €50 on your subscription to Chinese classes? I'm an ex-student at Confucius who had to cancel his subscription in the middle of last year, and to whom the Institute kindly gave vouchers of a value of €250 as a refund. As I'm still unable to register for classes in Brussels this year, I'm trying to sell those vouchers for €200 - in effect giving you a €50 discount on your subscription. Please contact me for further details, and for how we can arrange a safe and convenient trade: siny[at]live.be. ------------------------------------------------------------------ Aux Futurs Étudiants : Voudriez-vous économiser 50€ sur votre inscription à des cours de chinois ? Je suis un ex-élève de l'Institut, qui a dû annuler son inscription au milieu de l'année dernière, et à qui l'Institut a aimablement donné des bons d'une valeur de 250€ en compensation. N'étant toujours pas en mesure de m'inscrire pour des cours à Bruxelles cette année, je m'efforce de revendre ces bons pour 200€ - vous proposant, de fait, une réduction de 50€ sur vos frais d'inscription. Pour plus de détails et pour arranger un échange sûr et commode, veuillez me contacter : siny[at]live.be. ------------------------------------------------------------------ Beste Toekomstige Studenten: Zou u €50 willen sparen op uw inschrijving voor lessen Chinees? Ik ben een voormalig student in het Instituut, die zijn inschrijving heeft moeten annuleren in het midden van vorig jaar, en aan wie het Instituut vriendelijk coupons van een waarde van €250 teruggaf. Sinds ik nog steeds niet in staat ben om lessen in Brussels te volgen dit jaar, probeer ik nu die coupons voor €200 te verkopen; ik bied u dus een €50 korting aan op uw inschrijvingskosten. Voor meer informatie en om een veilige en aangename ruiling te regelen, neemt u alstublieft contact met mij op: siny[at]live.be.

    Hey, Is there a possibility to switch between the two beginner classes over the course of the year? I would be very interested to follow the introduction to Mandarin Chinese, however irregular working-hours might not allow me to reserve a certain evening each week to go to class. Being able to alternate between them would help me greatly. Kind regards
